The never ending story of immigration continues to burn.
If one looked back, they would find from the beginning of time this argument has raged. Stay or leave, what is on the other side of the hill? The grass must be greener, "I am sure of it."
Often it is not, sometimes there is no grass at all.
People leave or stay where they are for many reasons? The list is endless ranging from seeking adventure to fleeing persecution.
Equally endless are the reasons others have for telling them it is better to leave than stay where they are. Those reasons can, for the most part, be traced to another wanting money, power, or both.
It is not the other person which is the immigrant. Everyone's origin can be traced to someplace else. It depends on how far back you want to go. This is even true of those referred to as Native Americans.
This land is your land, this land is my land, but only if it is sovereign; borders define a country.
The question is not that of immigration, it is one of legal immigration. Those breaking the law cry out for immigration reform. They refuse to obey existing laws, seeking to bully their way past them.
It is the same tactic of rioting, looting, and burning cities to pound others into submission. The word bullying falls way short of describing the injustice of it.
There is no need for more laws that will not be obeyed, or reform. Existing laws are strong, we need enforcement, and those with the courage to do so.
Often it is said we are a nation of laws. A catchy phrase, but what does it really mean if laws are not enforced?
The purpose of law is to preserve freedom and moral agency.
Moral agency is vested with elected officials and officers of our legal system to maintain its integrity. Among us they are the most educated in governance, and experienced in juris prudence.
Acceptance of willful disobedience of the law by the very people elevated and charged with protecting the veracity of the law is an obscenity and epic betrayal of the highest national trust.
As this relates to illegal immigration, and many other things, this is happening.
The law is not being followed. It is known, known by everyone in the country, even by those violating it. Ask anyone, a waitress at the diner, a priest, a homeless person, a congressman, a supreme court judge, ask anyone, you will hear this.
The bar has been lowered well below the mark of offensive. Many activist officers of the court and elected officials vigorously subvert the law. Sanctuary cities hide felony invaders from the Immigration and Naturalization Service, while members of Congress and others hold protests against border security, and conduct other acts, operating to agitate civil unrest as they pursue political agenda.
Tolerating and listening to these people is stupid. Yes, stupid is the word I am going to use. Let us not be mistaken here. Accepting being told by people they are not going to do their job, that is stupidity.
People are literally marching under other countries' flags and banners making demands.
This is happening while our flag is being removed. Our Constitution has been weaponized against the law abiding.
Often in life we do not get what we want, we do get what we deserve. Accept lawlessness, and you will earn the wage of lawlessness.
Time alone will not bring change, it will continue to deteriorate. Those advancing it will grow stronger finding their way in more elected offices, and control more of the judicial system.
Anyone standing against this is labeled racist and/or anti-American. It is a calculated strategic loop of political correctness.
The cost of this can be measured in death, destroyed families, and billions of dollars.
It is common to hear of lawsuits being filed to defend those that violate our laws.
What about the endless and growing number of victims? When was the last time you were witness to a protest or riot in their defense?
Just exactly what will it take to outrage people to action?
It is said there are over three hundred and thirty million people in the United States. If ten percent picked up the phone, wrote letters, and or went to see their officials, America's borders would be secured.
Every American would be safer for it.
My guess is, few will.
